What are the projected cap and lux tax figures for next year?


Assuming we pick up the options on Lopez and Darius Miller (I really don't see us renewing Roberts and Thomas), that would put our spending for next season at $40,865,965.

This year, the salary cap is set at $58,044,000 and the lux tax is $70,307,000. Does anybody know if that number is projected to rise,fall,or stay the same next season?

I'm just trying to get a rough number in my head of how much money we will have free next year.

No one knows yet but the expectation is a slight bump of the cap to around $60 million and I'd assume a similar bump to the tax threshold.

I think I remember reading that is projected to stay EXACTLY the same. No change whatsoever.

Edit: I could be wrong based on TigerinATL's thoughts but I just found one blurb that said it was staying the same from an unreliable place.

The first 2 years of the CBA it was set to stay exactly the same. Next year is the first year it will be pegged to BRI and the expectations are a slight rise.

I think Thomas has a better chance of sticking than Miller. Miller had 4 years in college to grow his game and still can't find the court.

So it is safe to assume we will have atleast $18M to work with?

You have to add minimum roster holds to the $40 million to get the roster up to 12 and the minimum is around $490k IIRC so basically add $2 million to your figure. So if the cap goes up $2 million or so then the Hornets would have about $18 million in cap space.
